The pasta " Caramelle rosse al gorgonzola" was amazing! Lovely meal, service and atmosphere. We were a large group that received excellent service, with even a meal prepared that was not on the summer menu.

Greeted with warm smiles and seated with free Prosecco as an aperitif while we perused the menu. Everything we tried was delicious - salads, fish, pasta and desserts. I don't eat any meat (and avoid carbs) and found an excellent selection for my tastes too. Their gazpacho soup was an excellent starter. We finished our house wine before our main... More

Went here after reading great TA reviews which were well deserved. Food was amazing!. Had the gazpacho soup, which was excellent. Supplied with addition condiments to tailor it to your taste. I never saw that before. For dinner had the ravioli w/ black truffles, which I highly recommend. Very unique flavor. Finished w/ the chocolate mousse which was very good... More

If you're in Perugia, don't miss this awesome restaurant located in the Piazza Italia. Food was spectacular and the location was like your own little secluded piazza neighborhood. The chef/owner could not have been more welcoming and inviting. And, the chocolate liquor is indescribable!

When the hotel manager in Perugia recommended La Taverna as the best restaurant in town, he didn't know that we had planned to dine there based on trip advisor reviews. We were warmly greeted, seated, and served with smiles even though (according to Italian custom) it was early. We have enjoyed dining in many exceptional restaurants on Long Island and... More

The food was delicious, a true Italian kitchen. The wine was excellent and the service couldn’t have been better. I would highly recommend this place.

Following excellent reviews on TA I ate at this restaurant. I was extremely disappointed. I ordered pasta with Gorgonzola sauce. Whilst the sauce was pleasant the pasta was like a piece of old rubber. Not what one would expect of freshly cooked pasta. The creme brûlée for dessert was underwhelming ..all in all the food did not meet expectations. The... More
